Product Description

“It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my home town.” Each week, more than four million radio listeners hear these words, and settle in for some old-fashioned, up-to-the-minute storytelling. During live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion, Garrison Keillor takes us to “the little town that time forgot and the decades cannot improve,” where “the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and all the children are above average.” These expertly crafted tales touch the heart and tickle the funnybone.

Warm, poignant, often hilarious, each is a classic of live storytelling, full of gentle humor, genuine emotion, and (more often than not) surprising insights into family, community, love, faith, and hope.
